TALK & TEA - Dancing for the Marquis

Tuesday, 3 September 2019

10.00am- 12.00pm

Historian and writer, Dr Edith Ziegler will be speaking about her new book,

Dancing for the Marquis.

This is a fictionalised version of the improbable but true story of an infamous 19th century immigration and financial scandal perpetrated by the Marquis de Rays, a narcissistic and deluded French nobleman.

The talk will be richly illustrated to enable you to follow in the footsteps of the intending settlers on their strange and heartbreaking journey. Their experience is part of Australia’s rich immigration narrative, also the story of our stoical rural pioneers.

One of Eryldene’s delicious morning teas will be served prior to the talk.


Entry: $30 members of the Eryldene Trust, HHA and NT; $35 non-members.

Book early as numbers are limited. Bookings essential.

Book at www.ticketebo.com.au/eryldene or visit our website http://www.eryldene.org.au to find a booking form.

ERYLDENE SEPTEMBER OPEN WEEKEND

HISTORY WEEK – Memory & Landscapes

Saturday 14 & Sunday 15 September, 2019

10.00am – 4.00pm


Memories from grandfather Vickery's garden in Waverley, from Colonial cottage gardens and from gardens visited during a European sabbatical in 1906 - 1908 all inspired Professor Waterhouse's design for his garden at Eryldene. Tease out the subtleties of the landscape as you stroll through the tranquilly of his garden 'rooms'.

Book a granny-chic Sunday Afternoon Tea, inspired by those served by Mrs Waterhouse.
